Lady Squire Post Season Run Comes To An End

The youthful Manchester Lady Squires softball team traveled to Newton Park in Lakeville Saturday to play in their first ever semi state, falling to #9 Elwood 6-0 to end their post season run.

The Squires threatened in the top of the first when Brooklyn Howard drew a one out walk and stole second before Celina Carter sacrificed her to third. The Squires failed to score, but got out of a jam themselves in the bottom of the inning.

The Squires were held hit less the first four innings and gave up two runs in the fourth to trail 2-0 when the Elwood no hitter was broke up by a two out Mattie McKee single in the top of the fifth. Kierra Stacy was then robbed by a leaping catch by the second baseman to end the inning. Elwood would plate 4 runs in the bottom of the inning for a 6-0 lead.

The last Manchester hit came in the seventh which was a Celina Carter single as the Squire post season run came to an end.
